Product Details


“The illustrations in Larry Gets Lost in Philadelphia are very cute and vibrant.  My little guy had fun trying to find Larry on all of the pages as the dog ends up in between all the landmarks and attractions. One of the things that I enjoyed about Larry Gets Lost in Philadelphia was the extra information about each landmark that explains the history behind each place. It wasn’t an overly lengthly explanation; it included just enough information to explain the importance, which is perfect for children. It would be a great read to share before you actually visit the landmarks with your child…”
—Confessions of a Book Addict

“Larry Gets Lost in Philadelphia is a book that is perfect for introducing a young child to the beauty, and of course, the history of the city of brotherly love in a fun, kid-friendly way. …What makes this book a great learning experience is that it presents historical facts to children in an inviting way, and the vivid and colorful illustrations really make the learning experience come alive!”
—Land of Once Upon a Time

“You can read the story of Larry’s adventures to find Pete straight through or you can stay on each page and read a bit more detail about each of the Philly attractions. This is such a great way to give kids who are a little older (or willing to sit still) some additional background and historical information about our landmarks and sights.”
—Philly Fun 4 Kids

“This is just the cutest book and part of a series. I love this book for many reasons. One is that there are many ways to read it. You can read just the basic kiddy text or story line for more basic readers. For older kids you can go into details about the different spots in Philadelphia-the content is more advanced. Locals will love it because we love our city and all that it has to offer. But consider getting it as a gift for out-of-towners too, so that they can get excited about visiting Philadelphia.”
—A Day in Our Shoes

“Nothing beats a good book that stirs the reader into wanting to learn more and Larry wants us to learn more.”
—Susan’s Disney Family 

Larry Gets Lost in Philadelphia is such a cute book for kids – whether they’re local to Philly or not. While it will be fun for local kids to recognize and learn more about the places they’ve visited themselves, Larry also ends up being a pretty informative tour guide for kids who are not from Philly.”
—Fun Finds for Families

“The Larry Gets Lost books are great for a variety of ages. Younger kids will enjoy the basics as well as the pictures and for older kids (and adults) there are extra details and information about the spots Larry and Pete find themselves.”
—Philly Sproutlet

“Fun and educational is a tricky combination for children’s books—but it’s always great when it can successfully be achieved. The Larry Gets Lost book series is just that. It is a fun story housed in a citywide tour of the US. We started in our hometown of Philadelphia and it did not disappoint!”
